The Celestial Ganga

The Celestial Ganga

 

1.

Faintly flows the celestial Ganga

in the monsoon sky.

Who are you? A stream

of dust, or imagination?

Countless are the sands

on your bank.

 

2.

A splinter from a blazing granule,

a gem in fondness;

Here we, the nested worms,

look at you with breath suspended;

Waves of wonder roll

in your waterways.

 

3.

Our ages breathless

swam in the waves;

On wings of imagination

you flow, transcending knowledge;

On which hillside were you born,

your melody echoes from the ocean, though?

 

4.

Who will sport this glowing cracker?

In what fondness?

Whose blue mind’s sparking is it?

A bird of light flapping up

its wings? Like feelings,

in the faint fog, welling?

 

5

Proximal foamy

in no time,

full dazzling diamonds round

widen up my eyes!

Hearts stop

on your sandy banks.

 

6

Is someone pulsating today

with ripples of emotion?

O poetry of eternity!

O stream of winking suns

waving sinuous you flow

in the blue heavens.

 

7

Our hearts connect

in the fountain!

In me emotions rage,

hers scatter in heaven;

In fondness meet

eternity’s two ends!
